Welcome to my website. You can use this site to find out how to contact me, or to find out about me and Bristol East. 

It also includes regular updates on issues and campaigns in which I am involved and, in the news section, what I have been doing in Bristol and in Westminster. You can also use this site to access my blog.

On the surgeries page there is some useful information on what to do if you need help with a particular problem, and on the local heroes page you can find out more about what individuals and community organisations are doing to make Bristol East a better place.

This week in Westminster Kerry will be voting on Tuesday against the recent Budget and on Wednesday against the Government's plans to weaken the Hunting Act. She has received hundreds of emails from constituents urging her to Keep the Ban, and, as a Vice-President of the League Against Cruel Sports, opposes all blood sports. She will also be taking part in Foreign Office questions, and meeting with the Renewable Energy Association. In Bristol she is hosting a round table discussion on food poverty with the Matthew Tree Project, joining St George in Bloom at their open day on Saturday, and participating in workshops at the Soils of Bristol day at the Create Centre. On Sunday she will be attending the Tolpuddle Festival in Dorset.

Just before recess I was at a WWF event in Parliament on environmental issues, with rather a large panel of speakers – all male, all white and, with one exception, all middle-aged. I’ve now received an invite to another ‘green’ event, from the Aldersgate Group: a ‘Dragon’s Den’ type event on 11th September with the […]
